I wrote a 6-page spread for the October issue of ImagineFX Magazine featuring 15 tips to save your animation career before it starts.
A Few Of The Topics I Covered:
- Adapting to different styles.
- Showcase your strengths/ Hide your weaknesses.
- Building trust.
- "Tradigital" Techniques.
- Negotiating a fair rate.
The new issue (#113) also features articles by wunderkind Mingjue Helen Chen and Sorcerer Supreme Nathan Fowkes. It hits shelves in the UK on Friday and will arrive stateside about three weeks from now. …or you can just download the awesome iPad/ iPhone version.
The ImagineFX team was overwhelmingly generous with the amount of space they devoted to showcasing my artwork.
You’ll find a few new paintings (including full-page reproduction of the Octopus Artist pictured above and my newest Tin Man), a few sketches, a ”tradigital” process drawing and a color-corrected re-print of my original Animal Farm painting (it was super-dark when it appeared in the mag last year).
The amazing Cory Loftis was also kind enough to let me feature one of his illustrations to make a point about versatility.
This is my third collaboration with the wonderful folks at ImagineFX.
